Educating the Future

One family's scholarship endowment gives the gift of education.

In 2003, the J. Ben Buck family established the J. Ben Buck Scholarship in honor of a milestone birthday. "We believe it is important to encourage and support students who want to pursue health-related careers," says Sarah Buck, Ben's wife.

They established the J. Ben Buck Scholarship endowment while they are still able to meet the recipients and follow their academic and professional progress. A portion of their annual pledge payment helps grow the endowment and the remainder is awarded to the recipients. When the endowment is large enough, the scholarship awards will be made from the endowed fund. The Buck family's annual gifts will be supplemented by a provision in their estate.

Sarah and Ben are grateful to family members and friends who have joined them in contributing to the J. Ben Buck Scholarship endowment.
